And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Wintec Comfort Saddle Pad is a very nice, economical pad that assists in protection of your horse's back from unequal saddle pressure and offers good cushioning.

The pad is offered in lift front, lift back and one thickness. The Wintec Comfort Saddle Pad fits easily under the saddle on top of the saddle pad.

    Wintec Comfort Saddle Pad is rated 4.1304 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this pad as a temporary fix for a saddle that's too wide for my horse, so it would sit too close to his withers. Seems to be working well; he is obviously more comfortable now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical shock absorbing pad These pads are a great value to help correct fit and provide some shock absorption. I have the lift front and regular model and highly recommend them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a lifesaver! My ASB mare suddenly started acting strange and was too nervous and frustrated to be ridden for several weeks. After examining my saddle fit from the ground with a friend in my usual spot, I was able to se that the saddle was putting most of its pressure on the withers and rubbing awkwardly on the back, since the front of the saddle tilted down and the seat was almost not touching the saddle pad. We think this is because my mare (a rescue) gained a lot of weight after recovering, and the saddle pad I had wasn't cutting it. I ordered this pad, hoping to help the titlt in my saddle and give my mare's back a little more stable support. Not only did this pad help quiet my mare's reaction to being ridden, but it is also a much more comfortable ride for me, too! The only thing I would change about this pad is the color - the white will become a very dirty brown very quickly! Thank you so much, SmartPak, for saving my mare's back, and my patience.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wintec Comfort Saddle Pad I have the thicker one which works really well on my one horse but it didn't on my other horse. It was to thick so I thought I would try this one, because it wasn't is thick. I really do like it because it lift the saddle up off the horse back with comfort.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple pad that does the trick. This is a nice pad to add a small layer of "comfort" for your horse. It is not terribly bulky like some pads out there, but it does alter the saddle fit a little bit (good for a saddle that is slightly too wide). The plain comfort pad fits totally fine under my 17.5" close contact, and I assume it would fit up to an 18" saddle. I think it is a little over priced for a simple piece of foam, but, I do have to say that it served its purpose in adding a small layer of cushion to my horse, and I could tell he looked more comfortable when we used it than without.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not fit my horse I purchased this pad for a gelding that is sensitive just below and on either side of the point of the withers. This pad has square edges that dug into his sensitive area making it unsuitable for him. I imagine that, with a rider's weight pushing down on this pad, it would tend to press uncomfortably into any horse's "behind the shoulder area".

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Product The pad would have done the perfect job had it be 2 inches longer. Would not recommend to anyone with a saddle larger than 16"!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a life saver!! Last winter was very hard on my older QH gelding. He began losing weight and I was reluctant to ride him because my saddle was getting close to his withers. For a while I borrowed a lumpy western saddle pad with my English saddle. I found this half pad and decided to give it a try because it was exactly what he needed. I received my order very quickly and rushed out to the barn to try it on him. Not only did it fit perfectly but it also protected his withers exactly how I wanted it to! I could tell my horse appreciated it because he started to ride more collected and at-ease. I know this pad has helped his back 110%. He gained his winter weight loss back very quickly but I still use this pad, I don't ride without it now!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Value This is a very affordable correction pad and holds up pretty well. The only issue I have with it is it doesn't like to stay pulled up in the gullet very well. Not even halfway through my ride it would slide down and be smashed across my horse's withers causing painful pressure. Ended up investing in a Mattes correction pad that was much more effective in correcting saddle fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product! Very satisfied! I bought this pad to aid in keeping my saddle from putting undue pressure on my horse's back. It has a nicely molded channel which relieves any pressure on the spine and fits my 171/2 saddle perfectly! My horse is noticably softer and rounder in his back with this pad. I am very happy with the product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price I purchased this to use on my new 3 year old OTTB. I had a cc saddle that I was using on an appy/qh before I got her. I did not want to dish out the money on a new saddle for her since she will be growing some more and needed to put on some weight. She has fairly high withers so the saddle didn't fit too well. When using the front lift pad, it keeps the saddle well above her withers, absorbs any shock and protects her back. I have had no problems with the pad and will continue using it! Love this pad!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that thick Nice pad, confroms to the front of your saddle. Only bad thing is it is not that thick only about 1"

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for hard-to-fit horse I've used both the regular and lift-front versions of this pad. My TB has long, high withers with deep hollows and is very hard to fit. This pad really does the trick! The deep channel provides plenty of wither clearance, and the foam is just the right consistency to fill the gaps. Great shock absorption for jumping, too! I finally had to replace my first pad after using it for about 10 years.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not what I was looking for My horse's saddle seems to sit a little harder on her shoulder than on her back, so I was looking for a product that would lift the saddle off of her shoulder a touch. This pad instead tilted the saddle towards her withers instead of suspending it up off of her withers. I've successfully used lift-back pads to relieve wither/shoulder pressure with my western saddle, but maybe it doesn't work the same with English saddles, or maybe it was just the combination of my saddle and this pad. Regardless of whether it was my misunderstanding or the pad, this product didn't do what I was hoping it would do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful item! perfect thickness. Easily cut down to fit my saddle. it is a fantastic price. Would recommend in a heartbeat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT! I have a rather narrow Thoroughbred who needed just a little extra padding behind his withers to make my jumping saddle fit just right. I tried multiple different pads but finally found just the right one with this one. It's not as thick as a sheepskin half pad but not as thin as just a cotton saddle pad. It's in between those sizes and was just perfect to make my saddle fit exactly as I wanted it to. I would HIGHLY recommend it since it's worn very well and is very inexpensive compared with others. I give it an A+!
